How to Tell if Bananas Are Ripe for Baking Banana Bread

For this recipe, you’ll want to use very overripe bananas. They should be very soft and covered with dark brown speckles. This will provide both the best sweet flavor and the best texture.

Can I Freeze Overripe Bananas?

If you have overripe bananas and aren’t ready to bake with them, DO NOT throw them away!

How to Freeze Banana Bread

Freeze banana bread using these instructions to preserve its fresh flavor and texture for months:

  • Cool baked banana bread completely.Tightly wrap the loaf or slices (individually or grouped) in 2–3 layers of plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
  • Place wrapped banana bread in a large freezer-friendly storage bag or reusable container.
  • Date the bag and freeze for up to 3–4 months. Thaw wrapped or unwrapped in the refrigerator or at room temperature. All methods work like a charm!
  • I like to freeze the quick bread in slices because slices thaw much quicker than a whole loaf.

Substitutions for a Healthy Banana Bread:

  • Replacing sugar with honey.
  • Use organic whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour.
  • Replace 1 Tbsp of flour with 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed.
  • Reduce sugar to 1/2 cup when using very ripe bananas; they add plenty of sweetness
